A certain father of a family to whom there was a 
sufficiently large farm, moreover a son in whom he 
especially rejoiced, gave this one for a gift on his 
birthday a little axe. He exhorted him greatly to use 
the weapon with the highest care, lest it might be for 
a detriment to himself. The youth promised him- 
self to be about to obey. 

When it was necessary for that one, on account 
of business, to seek a certain walled town situated not 
far, this one, the axe having been hastily seized, de- 
parts into the garden, about to cut down each most 
flourishing cherry tree. 

That one, his home having been resought, in- 
flamed with wrath, the servants being called together, 
asked who might have been the author of this so 
great slaughter. All were denying, when this one, 
running up to that one, 'Truly, by Hercules," said he, 
"O my father, I am unable to lie; I, myself, cut down 
the tree with that little axe which thou gavest to me 
for a present."

One day a notice was put upon the Bulletin Board 
asking for Free Press Items on topics of college interest. 
It was believed that some few of the three hundred college 
and academy girls would respond to the suggestion. Daily 
the Greetings box was opened, but no articles had been 
put in; no contributions except the departmental and so- 
ciety reports. If the free contributions in the Greetings 
box were our only source of material, no one should be 
so very much interested in our college paper. Girls, it's 
"up to you." We can't have a paper without material. 
We can't get material unless you are willing to write. 
What if we should have to elect our editor and staff mem- 
bers, as is done by Wellesley college, from the girls who 
have made free contributions to the college paper ? There 
are, of course, two sides to the collecting of material. In 
the doing of what has been asked of individuals the staff 
has no complaint to make, but our paper needs the enthu- 
siasm which would come from interested, spontaneous 
contributions. The Greetings asks for your support. 

The Courier office sent down for the use of the 
Greetings' contributors copy paper. The paper is made 
to fit the copy-holder, therefore it is for their convenience 
that we use it. Any contributor may have it by calling 
at the office. Write across the pad and your reports will 
not need to be recopied.

Wbt College Greeting* 

During the Hellenistic times as it had been in earlier 
Greece, the custom of setting up a statue of the goddess 
Victory in celebration of a successful battle or campaign 
was usual; and the Louvre possesses a statue, found on 
Samothrace, which is a magnificent example of the cus- 
tom. The Victory of Samothrace was found in 1863, 
broken into a multitude of fragments, which have been 
carefully united, but there are no modern pieces, except 
the wings. The statue stood on a pedestal having the 
form of a ship's prow, the principal parts of which were 
found by an Austrian expedition to Samothrace in 1875. 
These fragments were subsequently conveyed to the 
Louvre, and the Victory now stands on her original pedes- 
tal. She was erected on Samothrace by Demetrius of 
Macedon, to commemorate a naval victory over the 
Egyptians in 306 B. C. We do not know who was the 
sculptor of the statue, but certain silver coins by Deme- 
trius bear upon one side a Victory which agrees closely 
with that of Samothrace, even to the great prow pedestal. 

Page Four 

Qtfje College (greeting* 

It seems reasonably certain, because of the close resem- 
blance between coin-type and statue, that the Victory was 
dedicated at Samothrace by Demetrius soon after the naval 
battle with the Egyptians and that the commemorative 
coins borrowed their design directly from the statue. Thus 
we get a date for the statue, and clear evidence as to how 
it should be restored. 

The figure of the goddess is considerably larger than 
life size, and is represented as standing on the prow of a 
ship. With her right hand she holds a trumpet to her 
lips, with her left she carries a cross-tree, the frame-work 
of a trophy. The ship upon which she has just alighted 
is thought to be under way, and her wings are outspread 
behind her, and her drapery is swept by the wind so as to 
cling close to her body in front, and to stream in heavy 
masses away from her limbs. She glides through space 
easily, hardly using her wings. Her knees are scarcely 
bent, and the figure does not seem to advance by its own 
speed, but by that of the ship on which it stands. The 
head is gone, but one never fails to see in the beautiful 
body the joy with which the swift motion through space 
has pervaded her. 

In order to realize the great effect of Victory, we 
may compare it with the Victory of Paeonius. There is 
a vigor and force about Victory of Samothrace which 
carry us away at the first impression; but from it one turns 
with relief to rest on the simpler statue of Paeonius. This 
seems to be the effect of the drapery which has no breadth 
or system. Victory of Samothrace seems more impetu- 
ous and imposing, while Victory of Paeonius leaves us 
calm; this gives us a sense of onward motion against the 
salt sea air. Yet there is nothing sensational about this 
work; some of it reminds us of the finest bits of modelling 
in earlier work, and is doubtless imitated from them; other 
parts of it show a close and careful study from nature and 
there is something about the statue which must have been 
very effective in the surroundings amidst which the statue 
was erected, in the open air, and in open country. Then 

Page Five 

®fje College Greeting* 

it must have been almost startling to come upon this effect- 
ive Victory, rushing through the air on her ship to an- 
nounce her tidings. 

Gardner said, the figure is best appreciated if one re- 
vives memories of a similarly swift motion experienced, 
for instance, in the prow of an ocean steamer. For the 
moment the cares of the world fall away, and one is filled 
with a sense of confidence. It is then that the essence of 
real victory is felt, which is faith in the success of the no- 
blest ideals. This was the artist's conception. Success 
has crowned his endeavors, for he has struck a true chord 
of every man's heart. 

Mutilated though the statue now is, it is as well liked 
by peasant or tourist who happens to stray into the large 
hall of the Louvre, as by the scholar who goes there to 


In the days when the College was struggling against 
various reverses, Belles Lettres and Phi Nu societies were 
striving to maintain their existence and the high standards 
they had set themselves. Their first meetings were held 
in some vacant class room, the key that locked the door 
being the only symbol of their authority. Later, as their 
membership grew, the two societies met in the chapel, at 
the same time, in opposite corners of the room, with other 
people at perfect liberty to pass in and out. The compli- 
cations that ensued resulted in meetings held in alternate 
weeks. The president, soon after this, decreed that a fac- 
ulty member be present at all society meetings. The girls 
rebelled and locked the faculty member out, after which a 
committee sought the president with their grievances and 
they were finally permitted to hold their meetings in peace. 
When property on the west of the College was purchased, 
the societies were given rooms in an old house on that lot. 
The girls were all enthusiasm for at last they were going to 
have homes of their own. With their own hands they 

Page Six 

Wdt College Greeting* 

scrubbed and scoured and cleaned, painting the floors 
themselves. The girls of the present cannot quite realize 
with what devotion and loyalty those other girls did ser- 
vice for ivy leaf or shield. When plans were made for the 
extension of the old building, the two societies pledged 
five hundred dollars each, on provision that they have 
halls in the new addition, in exchange for those in the old 
house which was to be torn down. These halls were in 
what is now the library, and it was with a "home-at-last" 
feeling that they held their first meetings there. The girls 
themselves decorated the rooms and worked energetically 
to pay off the indebtedness. It was a jubilant meeting 
that celebrated the last payment. But they had not been 
long here when Harker Hall was built and rooms there 
were promised to both societies. They moved again, tak- 
ing with them the furniture that had been added, piece by 
piece, and established themselves in their present homes. 
It has been with a feeling of joy and pride that a new piece 
of furniture, a picture or some piece of statuary has been 
added to the present home-like and attractive halls. 

Last year, because of the growth of the College and 
the limited memberships of the two old societies, charters 
were granted to Lambda Mu and Theta Sigma, in the Col- 
lege, and to the Academea Society in the Academy. To 
them has not yet been granted the time for a long history, 
but as proud possessors of parlors on fourth and fifth Har- 
ker Hall they deem themselves ready to fill each year as 
full of progress as they have had in their beginning year. 

It has not been one stride but a series of steps that 
has led from those basement meetings of long ago to the 
meetings held today in the halls and parlors of the societies. 
Much credit is due to those girls of other years who helped 
lay the strong and true foundations on which the societies 
of today stand.

If some of us who think perhaps that our privileges 
are too curtailed, could only understand what the inani- 
mate objects of the building might tell us, we should prob- 
ably change our minds on some points. Maybe we can 
learn something from the clock—suppose we ask it. 

"Mr. Solemn Clock-in-the-front-hall, what can you 
tell us about changes in privileges since you came here to 

"Br-r-r ! Wait till I strike ten. That's for lights out. 
Well, to begin with, that used to be at 9:30. Why, even 
the Y. W. cabinet had to meet from 9:00 to 9:30, and it 
was an unheard-of thing for anyone to have a light per- 
mission after ten o'clock. No, not even for mission study 
classes. That makes me think of Sundays. The girls 
used to march before me in one line with the Lady Princi- 
pal at the head on their way to church. No individual 
church-going, then! Not much! Evening quiet hour be- 
gan at seven, and they say not even four girls could be 
together in one room. Could you tell me, is it so that 
some actually cook on Sunday now? What is this school 
coming to ? The smell of fudge or toast on Sunday a few 
years ago would have made us all faint. As for staying 
up from evening luncheon, that would have been a most 
unseemly thing for any young female to do. What's 
that? Oh, the walks. Yes, it certainly is true that once 
upon a time the whole school walked together at four 
o'clock. Why, it was considered a great concession when 
the line was allowed to go beyond the block; always, 
though, with a teacher at the head and end of the line. 
As for shopping, that was always on Mondays only, and 
always with faculty chaperonage. I wish some of the 
Academy girls would take it from me that they have more 
privileges as it is than they ever would have without col- 
lege connection." 

"Oh, you're not quitting, are you, Mr. Clock?" 

But see, his pendulum has stopped swinging. We'll

have to wait till Tom winds him again, then maybe he can 
tell us more. 


"For goodness sake, Helen, don't turn off that light 

yet. Miss won't be around for a few minutes, and I 

just have to finish this letter to-night. I won't have time 
in the morning to do it. (Knock at door.) Well, she 
hasn't had to call us down many times before for keeping 
on the light, so what's the difference? " 


Did you ever go strolling down the corridor about 
ten o'clock at night and watch the curious phenomena 
which takes place ? First, on your left a light flashes off 
and stays off; they are Freshmen. Then, on your left a 
light burns brightly on; they are Seniors and have light 
per. Then comes a curious little procedure: the light 
flashes off; you stand still and watch; the light goes on 
again; you take a step or two forward and off it goes. 
This curious little succession of movements continue until 
you have left the floor. They are Sophomores. On you 
wander, viewing lights on, lights off, and lights going on 
and off, until your own corridor teacher appears and sends 
you home a-hiking. 

L. McCloud, '16. 


We've had a talk about these things 

Which we sometimes forget. 
We mean our table manners and 

What's called etiquette. 

Don't leave your knife upon your plate 

For it is most uncouth 
And it might slip when buttersmeared, 

Oh what a shame, forsooth! 

Page Nine 

Wbt College (greetings; 

If you are careful of the cloth 

And truly well brought up 
You will not leave your spoon 

To swing 'round in your coffee cup. 

Be careful of your knife and fork 

To use them properly, 
A "cello grip" is always bad 

'cept in an orchestry. 

Don't smack your lips nor thip your thoup" 

Nor 'cross the table yell. 
If they can't hear, don't strain your voice 

Nor all your troubles tell. 

When nervous and embarrassed quite 

Don't play with napkin rings 
Or twiddle with the forks and spoons 

Or other table things. 

Phyllis Wilkinson, 17. 

When head of table is not not there 
Salute her substitute so fair — 
When soup we drink or eat or sip 
Put only side of spoon to lip — 
If you would stir your coffee cup 
Don't leave your spoon a-stickin' up — 
When sitting at the dining table 
Converse as well as you are able.

A recent number of the Classical Journal has given 
an account of the uniting of the American Academy of 
Fine Arts at Rome with the former American School of 
Classical Studies, and described the present equipment and 
the facilities for research and study. 

Under the new organization the school is part of a

very strong institution. It occupies permanent quarters 
on the Janiculum, well fitted in size and equipment to its 
present requirements and as far as could be seen into the 
future. The library of the United Academy, which is very 
large and well chosen, has been placed at its disposal, and 
a specially designed room provided for the museum. 

The size of the new institution has made possible the 
long wished-for summer session for teachers, beginning 
about July 1 and lasting until August 12, which will be 
especially beneficial to those who cannot leave their pro- 
fessional duties in America at any other time. 

Women are admitted on the same terms as before, 
but men now have the special advantage of living in the 
dormitory. It is hoped that in the further expansion of 
the school a dormitory will soon be provided for women 


On Thursday, February 5, was the Day of Prayer for 
colleges, a day which means much to every girl in this Col- 
lege. The girls were brought to a more reverent and 
thoughtful attitude toward the significance of the Day of 
Prayer in the corridor prayer meetings, held on Tuesday, 
Wednesday and Thursday mornings, and in the mass- 
prayer meeting in the reception room on Wednesday even- 
ing. In these meetings the girls helped one another by 
discussing their own religious experiences and spiritual life. 

On Thursday morning classes met the first two hours. 
At ten o'clock each of the different classes and the faculty 
held short meetings, in which the different phases of our 
religious work were discusssed. 

Bishop Shepard of Kansas City gave the morning 
address. He spoke of the greatness of our possessions. 
We have the world, life, death, all things present, and all 
things to come through Christ, for Christ is God's. He 
spoke with such conviction of the truth in his message, that 
he inspired in us all a desire to live for Christ.

Wyt College Greeting* 

In the afternoon Dr. Marker, the faculty and the stu- 
dents met in the old chapel for an hour together, a custom 
which is dear to all here. Reports of the morning faculty 
and class prayer meetings were given. Dr. Harker gave 
a short talk on religious experiences and naturalness of 
religion. The rest of the hour was spent in song, prayer 
and short remarks on what religion means to us. It was 
a blessed hour in which we put aside all else, to consider 
how we stood with God and to reconsecrate our lives to 
His service. 


The College Council's main activity the last few 
months has been in connection with the starting of stu- 
dent government. The appointment of the Forwards and 
Backwards Committees were made by the Council. The 
Committee on evaluation of outside work done by the stu- 
dents has made its final report. Irene Crum acted as 
chairman of the committee. 

The May Day ceremonies have been discussed. The 
Council's suggestion that all the exercises with the excep- 
tion of grand march, may pole drill and lantern drill be 
from the rhythm classes was approved. 

An item perhaps of lesser interest, a fact perhaps not 
known to all, is the day's vacation at Easter time, which 
has kindly been granted at the request of the Council. 


For several months a student committee of five mem- 
bers, with Helen Harrison as chairman, has been working 
on the constitution and by-laws for the temporary form 
of student house government. The by-laws provide for 
fourteen proctors, twelve elected by the separate corridors, 
one elected by the academy at large and one senior elected 
by the college students, who is chairman of the board. 
The duties of the proctors shall be to enforce all regula- 

Page Twelve 

QKje College (greetings 

tions in the College and to inform the students whom they 
are representing of all matters decided upon by the Board 
of Proctors. This committee also formulated certain 
rules based upon the report of another committee on old 
and established rules and customs. These regulations 
cover general house deportment, the church going, chapel 
cuts, lights and general permissions. 

After a series of house meetings, the resident students 
have now, with a few amendments, accepted the proposed 
outline for a trial month. The faculty have been very 
kind and helpful and have allowed the constitution and 
general rules to stand with but few changes. It now re- 
mains only to elect the proctor board when the experi- 
ment will begin. The student body is as a whole so en- 
thusiastic that we feel confident of the success of the 


On the seventh and eighth of February, Miss Craw- 
ford visited us in the interest of the one, two and three 
year volunteer movements. Saturday evening Dr. Mar- 
ker entertained the Y. W. cabinet at dinner to meet Miss 
Crawford, and then she at the Y. W. meeting on Sunday 
afternoon gave to the students an interesting talk on the 
need for one, two or three years of missionary service, 
giving an opportunity for travel and close study of a for- 
eign race, and the call for college graduates to supply the 
need. She also told us of other work that the service 
circle could take up in the line of social service right at 
home. Any one wanting fuller particulars of the work, 
see Miss Dorothy Stevens.

examinations were:

"Prunes and prisms" have seen hard usage this 
month. All sorts of beautiful come-off expressions have 
been floating around, only to be grabbed up by some poor 
one, whose turn it was to go to the photographers. Such 
then gave place to anxious, care-worn examination faces 
as soon as the Annual picture taking time was over. 

Y. W. C. A. 

At a business meeting on February thirteenth, the fol- 
lowing were elected to office for the year beginning 
March first: Ruth Want, president; Helen McGhee, vice- 
president; Alice Tombaugh, treasurer; Alma Weber, sec- 
retary. The chairmen of committees are yet to be ap- 
pointed by the old cabinet. 

The latest venture of the cabinet is a weekly stunt 
night to take place every Wednesday from dinner till seven 
o'clock. The purpose is simply a general social time, 
with the emphasis on the general. There is room for 
everyone in the Belles Lettres and Phi Nu halls. It is 
hoped that every resident student will do her best to help 
everyone else have a good time and that requests for 
stunts will fairly run over each other. If you've never 
given a stunt, begin now—it's lots of fun. The best 
thing about it is that affairs planned in a hurry are usually 
more successful than elaborately arranged programs. 

Y. W. has in the last month received several guests, 
among whom were Mrs. Mary Carr Curtis, the student sec- 
retary of the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society of the 
Methodist Church, and Miss Ruth Crawford of St. Louis,

a volunteer representative of the one-year plan for service 
in the mission field. 

The Association has been making a collection of cast- 
off clothing, especially shoes, which are to be turned over 
to the Associated Charities for distribution. 

On the Day of Prayer was started a new and promis- 
ing department of the Y. W. C. A., called the Service 
Circle. The idea is to band together all who are willing 
to take the following pledge: "Because I love Jesus 
Christ and His church, it is my purpose to seek to know 
what He will have me do, to use every effort to under- 
stand the various kinds of service taught by Him, and to 
engage in some kind of definite Christian work wherever 
I may be." Many students wish to pledge themselves to 
Christian work, but do not yet know in what field. For 
such the circle is formed. It will also include any who 
may have already planned their life-work, as the Student 
Volunteer. Every member of the senior class has signed 
this pledge, and it is hoped that others, especially upper- 
class students, will soon signify their interest.

Music, is singing regularly in the Grace Church choir. She 
also gave a Schubert recital for the History of Music class, 
February thirteenth. 


On February ninth Mr. Edward Howard Griggs of 
New York gave two lectures on the Artists' Course. His 
afternoon subject was 'The Meaning and Function of 
Sculpture and Painting." Those present had a very un- 
usual privilege in hearing from a man of such universal 
culture the place and inspiration that the major arts of 
sculpture, painting, music and poetry hold in life and what 
they mean for enrichment and beauty. 

In the evening Mr. Griggs' subject was "Art for Life's 
Sake," the keynote of which was the statement that one 
should have art in life — not for adornment's sake, not for 
technique's sake, but art for. life's sake, art for the fuller 
enrichment of the spirit. Mr. Griggs has the power of 
carrying his audience with him all through his address and 
of drawing pictures of the great art and productions of the 
ages, suffused with the atmosphere of their creation. 

It was a great privilege to have Mr. Griggs with us, 
and it was the universal hope that he might come again 
next year. 

Among the new students enrolled the second semester 
in the School of Fine Arts we notice the following: 
Juanita Bare, Blanche Day, Josephine Knewitz, Lura Wis-

well, Phyllis Wilkinson, Lillie Lind, Lucile Bundy, LaVone 
Patrick and Elda Noll. 

Beulah Erixon has concluded to take the full art 
course leading to graduation. 

A recent letter from Ruth Miller says she will be able 
to return to work in the near future. 

Miss Knopf is represented again this year at the Chi- 
cago Artists' Exhibition, being held during February at the 
Chicago Art Institute. 

Sketch Class has been doing some interesting poses, 
namely: Julia Stuckey, Ruth Mattocks, Mildred Barton, 
Marion Newlin, Phyllis Wilkinson, Blanche Day, Catherine 
Long and Flora Miller. 

Feril Hess and Dorothy Stevens are working on the 
Annual illustrations. 


Phi Nu has had two jolly chafing dish parties in the 
hall. One shortly after our Christmas vacation and the 
other the Saturday night following examination week. 
Nothing could have been more informal or more fun. 
Everyone was set to making "rabbit" or toasting bread. 
Serving was decidedly on the cafeteria plan, and what if 
some of the "bunny" did seem a little inclined to run, 
examinations were over and little things no longer mat- 
tered. Later we pulled taffy until our arms were tired 
and our thumbs blistered, but worry was forgotten and the 
creamy sticks of candy were compensation for blisters. 

Phi Nu's jolly Valentine sleighride was quite as much 
fun as the chafing dish parties. We started at seven, with 
Miss Mothershead as chaperone. It was an ideal night 
and we were so busy finding room for our arms and feet 
that we didn't have time to get cold. 

A truly successful party must have surprises and ours 
came in the guise of a cinder bed into which the drivers 
turned. Fortunately it was only half a block from Erma 
Elliott's. We all piled out and went there to get warm. 
Hot oyster soup helped in this thawing process, and by the 
Page Twenty

time we were all warm the sleigh was ready and we sang 
our way homeward. 


Two new members, Helen Ost and Ora Theobald, 
were pledged to Belles Lettres at the regular meeting on 
Tuesday, February the tenth. During the past month the 
following old members were back with us for short visits: 
Miss Mona Summers from Depaw University, Miss Harriet 
Walker of Joplin, Missouri, and Miss Lois Coultas from the 
University of Illinois. Miss Coultas will take her master's 
degree there this year. 

For this semester's work we have taken up the study 
of the Modern American Drama. Very interesting pro- 
grams have been planned, with reviews of different plays, 
the development and different phases of the drama, the 
theater and its actors. 


The Theta Sigma Society has welcomed the following 
new members: Alice Birch, Gretchen Franken and Louise 

Miss Floy Newlin, who attended school here last year, 
came Saturday, February the fourteenth, for a short visit. 

Saturday evening, the members of the Theta Sigma 
Society went out to Annie Floreth's to celebrate Valen- 
tine's Day in a jolly manner, Miss Newlin being with us 
again for the first time this year. There was pop-corn, all 
anyone would want, after which came the "taffy pull." 
During the evening games were played and stunts of vari- 
ous kinds were performed. 



Lambda Alpha Mu enjoyed having Miss Mildred Wol- 
fers present at one of its meetings last month. During the 
program Miss Wolfers read several selections from a book 

Page Twenty-one 

Witt College Greeting* 

of her own poems which she had previously presented to 
the society. 

Lambda Mu received three new members during the 
past month: Misses Melba Anderson, Wilma Cox and 
Pauline Hermann. 

The society play, "The Betty Wales Girls and Mr. 
Kidd," was presented in Music Hall February sixteenth. 
The plot of the play is taken from the well-known book, 
"Betty Wales, Junior." Betty with several of her friends 
invent a girl to mystify the college. Mary Brooks, a sen- 
ior, discovers the joke and turns the tables. 

The cast of characters was: 

Betty Wales — Grace Heller. 

Helen Chase Adams — Mary Louise Witbeck. 

Madeline Ayres — Naomi Davis. 

Mary Brooks — Mary Shastid. 

Babbie Hildred — Lucile Reinbach. 

Bob Parker — Mary Harrison. 

Babe Henderson — Eloise Williams. 

Roberta Lewis— Helen DeWitt. 

Miss Priscilla Hicks — Ruth Want. 

Georgiana Arms — Helena Munson. 

The real Georgia Ames — Ola Wendel. 


Thursday evening, February twelfth, Academea 
pledged three new girls, Marguerite Watson, Pauline Jones 
and Mary Cozart. The members are very glad to wel- 
come them into the society. 

February tenth, after a regular meeting, we had a 
taffy pull in Expression Hall to celebrate the anniversary 
of the first meeting of the society. 

The first framed poster from the Art Department 
was one which announced a meeting of Academea.

'The Francis Shimer Record" has an exceptionally 
good alumnae department under the heading of "The 
Scattered Family." The November number also contains 
several good bits poetry. 

"The Pegasus" could be improved by the addition of 
a distinctly literary department and the use of a few cuts. 

Class of 1914 — Class. 

Class of 1915 — Gas. 

Class of 1916 — Brass. 

Class of 1 9 1 7 — Grass. — Ex. 

"The Greetings" thanks some of our exchanges for 
the information sent at our request. 

The article "Illinois College Men in Public Life" 
shows that Illinois College has a right to be proud of her 
past. We congratulate the Rambler for thus keeping in 
touch with the history of the college. 

The February number of "The Western Oxford" is 
exceptionally good. The Junior class might well include 
in their poem, "Mediaeval and Modern History," that they 
had also a talent for writing both prose and poetry. 

The article on "College Efficiency," which appears 
in the February number of "The Carthage Collegian," is 
both interesting and instructive.
